another country without congressional consent. here is joe biden. >> i'd like to be clear. the president does not have the authority to launch military action in iran without first seeking congressional a authorization. >> we don't believe any authority the president has would give him the ability to go in without an act of congress. >> the president has no constitutional authority to take this nation to war against a country of 70 million people unless we're attacked or unless there is proof that we are about to be attacked. and if he does, if he does, i would move to impeach him. >> congressman, just to clarify. joe biden from 2007 and nancy pelosi and harry reid all talking about how they felt then about president bush. what do you think is the biggest obstacle for the president? it seems as if republicans in congress, they are kind of caught between a rock and a hard place on giving the go ahead for this. but then allowing the president to almost seem as the dove turned neocon. >> the republicans for past several months have been criticizing the president for doing nothing and now th
on the other side about how this resonates for you in new orleans, but this was vice president joe biden earlier talking about one of them. take a look. >> the proposed rule requires people associated with these kinds of trusts or corporations to go through the same background check that individuals have to do. we'll end this means by which to get these most dangerous weapons to people who are not under the law allowed to own them. >> so mr. mayor, like other urban and major cities, new orleans struggles with the issue of crime. what specifically did the president say that resonated that you can take back and implement for the people of new orleans. >> first of all, the fact that he had the meeting on the day before he was going to commemorate dr. king's address, and simultaneously considering our nation as response, really indicated to us that he's serious about finding every which way we can to curb urban violence, so that spoke volumes. secondly the mayors around the country are working on the same kind of cat trophic problems, what we have said, is -- is a catastrophic event that's o
rubio and ted cruz say that is unfair to us? hillary clinton and joe biden weigh in and say you didn't do a cover story about us. it's allowed russ. rein -- ludicrous. they are now threatening to shut the government down is what priebus should be skeng trating on. >> they came out with ideas about the rnc and autopsy report of 2012. in that autopsy, priebus says he wants to limit the number of debates in 2016. the republican candidates advma themselves look bad in debates. this is buying him cover, isn't it? >> no. the number of debates doesn't stop stupid coming out of your mouth. you can just have one debate and have that happen. >> doesn't this limit the chances statistically greatly by having less debates? >> yeah. that may be. the fact of the mat is, you know, we have been talking in my last year in office about moving the convention up out from late august into earlier in the process to having a fix the number of debates that would be sponsored and conducted with the rnc partnership with the media. and made that somewhere between six and eight debates over the course of the pri
numbers are big in new hampshire. 62%. joe biden with 8%. deval patrick at 5. cory booker at 2% and andrew cuomo at 1%. if hillary clinton were to declare this is a shoe-in at this point. she's not said boo about which way she's thinking. >> that's true. it is a unique set of circumstances. hillary clinton is a powerhouse with no real rival since eisenhower in terms of people getting ready to run. if she runs it will be difficult to even compete with her on any level. if she doesn't the field is wide open. >> let's talk about the emerging star on the right. when it comes to the gop primary chris christie is on top with 21% followed by rand paul with 16 and then marco rubio. cruz is in the single digits. marco rubio was on top of the list. now we see chris christie. what is happening? >> you are polling moderate republicans who want washington to work. if we look at 2016 what you see, the fact that you have a tea party candidate, libertarian candidate like rand paul going head to head with chris christie they may eat each other alive and not have a shot at the white house again. if you look
. hillary is going to be tougher to beat. >> now we have vice president joe biden confirming he is the key note speaker in an annual steak fry in iowa that is coming up next month. this sounds very familiar. what are the chances of the people that we have already seen showing up in iowa being true contenders come 2016? >> we have a mix of rodeo clowns who are in. it because they just want to stay relevant. donald trump. rick santorum has a narrow base appeal and people are rising stars and proving themselves such as ted cruz. everybody is talking about how ted cruz did so it's possible that he is on track to be the favorite for 2016. >> one thing about donald trump taking aim at hillary but before we get to hillary, talk about donald for a moment. we heard what irin thinks. he is showing up to remain relevant? it has no real bearing on presidential hopefulness. >> if i was rich and bored i probably would do the same thing. why not? he can. what he loves is publicity. he is like the dark hole, you know, of that all strange political publicity gets sucked into. he is just there for fun. >> s
in "wall street journal" that is stirring some talk in the direction of joe biden saying political allies of vice president biden have concluded he can win the 2016 presidential election even if hillary clinton enters this contest. can the vice president go up against hillary clinton or do you think he will bow out? >> i think a lot of folks are rolling their eyes at the 2016 race starting so early. in my view, i think there are some benefits. first and foremost, political competition is a good thing. if biden does run he is going to pressure hillary clinton to propose better solutions hopefully a health reform and other issues. even for the republican side with rand paul and chris christie debating they are bringing ideas about civil liberties, about changing the status quo in terms of foreign policy into the republican party. that's a good thing. these are healthy debates. >> so early to be talking about 2016! but i guess that is our job. thank you all so much. you can find more from our agenda panel on our website tv.msnbc.com. follow the link to my nam. >>> breaking news in the trial
of the 2016 campaign. >> when we talk about that and i know you've been following joe biden, not going into the night quietly so to speak. there my be certainly interest from him about whether or not he is going to make a go for 2016. does that all depend on what hillary clinton wants to do? >> well, it's not so clear. there was an article in "the wall street journal" just yesterday which suggested that biden's close advisers have determined he could win in a face-off with hillary clinton in a democratic primary. you know, perhaps there is some, you know, behind the scenes jockying going on. but i think what it points to and the reason all of this is starting so early is in the autopsies of the mitt romney campaign, people felt that he had a decided disadvantage against president obama because he didn't have enough time -- did not have enough time to get a campaign apparatus up and running. republicans are doing that and i think on the same side, you're seeing democrats starting to do that. i think to run what is in excess of a billion dollar operation, to run for president, you have t
